Heimess is designed to stimulate your baby in the early months. It has safe movable parts that allow your baby to explore and stimulates babies overall development. Heimess can be cleaned with warm water. Heimess can be put by babies in their mouths without a second thought. Just as with every other toy, wooden toys do get worn - but loss of colour does not diminish the safety. Non-toxic, saliva resistant colours, nickel compliant metal parts. Heimess wooden toys for baby and infants have been 'made in Germany' for more than 50 years. Heimess baby toys are made entirely of Beech, Maple and Nut Wood.
